At the end of the novel, Awiti comments:
No matter the destruction that ensues, I have learned no amount of vengeance can replace what I lost. There is no reparation great enough to substitute for what was stolen. Is there truly a cost for an altered destiny? There is nothing that can overturn the curse of a nation that was once blessed.Do you agree with Awiti's final sentiments? Can she never find peace? Can we?
